Every Arrest Matters

Hubert Collins, American Renaissance, November 16, 2020

In October, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) released two short videos to show how important its work is.

These videos are fictionalizations — but they reflect reality.

On Thursday, CBP agents found two bags of Fentanyl pills hidden underneath a car seat. Those drugs weighed 1.3 pounds and were enough to kill 200,000 people.  The day before, a CBP agent arrested Honduran Luis Padilla at a checkpoint in Texas. Mr. Padilla was in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), a centralized database of criminals where any agency can see if anyone has information on a perp. Thanks to the NCIC and biometric verification done at the checkpoint, CBP learned that Mr. Padilla was wanted in Worcester, Massachusetts for raping a child.

People who work in immigration know that elections have consequences.
